Character is the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. There are many, many people who have a specialty in their character. They may be honest, inspiring, or dedicated. Someone I know is all of these and many more. This person is Coach Pennington. Coach Pennington is a really inspirational person. There are many positive things about him, including the fact that he is very determined to teach his players about any sport he teaches along with life lessons. Along with positivity, there is also negativity. One negative thing about Coach Pennington is that he has a temper when his team loses or does something wrong, considering the fact that he came from a very successful school (Wichita Falls High School/Old High) and succeeded in sports as well. If Coach Pennington wasn 't the way he is now, he would be very rude and unforgiving to his team. Coach Pennington is as supportive as if the players/students were his own, and I believe that he has a strong character.-87 …show more content…

There are many, many positive things about him, one being that he served in the United States Navy after he married and had his first few children, and the responsibility of taking care of more children. With positive results comes negative results, for example, my grandfather was very tough on his kids and grandkids considering his time in the field.

I will be analyzing Troy White from the book Football Genius by Tim Green. I have noticed this character displays the character trait of determination. Troy has determination because he never gave up on trying to get his play predicting powers to work and since he never gave up in the end they finally worked. One example of Troy being determined is when he was telling Coach Krock he could, he said “Run the tape. Let me watch.
When beginning to read “Quiet Strength”, I noticed a strong value within Tony Dungy through his writing. A value that many people lack from time to time. Respect. Within the second chapter, you notice this value greatly when he speaks of his childhood and his family. He mentions his parents’ values multiple times and the discipline his siblings and himself would receive.
I nominate Dr. Nick Lynchard because he’s a very influential teacher and cares deeply about his students. When I tool Psy 101 with Dr. Lynchard he spoke about more than just his subject matter and focused on teaching us things about academia that nobody else does at this level. I’ve never been concerned about how my outward appearance or the way I carried myself would matter in meeting people or getting accepted into better colleges. He taught me about how to get in to graduate school and the politics behind that and what I could expect. He put great stress on the factors of cinching down and doing well in classes that I had little or no interest in and to fully submerge myself in the life on the fields I am interested well before I’m actually

She specifically goes after the glee club students as she hates sharing funds with their club and is upset that some of her cheerleaders are apart of the club as well. When the glee club was going to cut if they didn’t win sectionals, Sue told the opposing schools glee clubs what numbers they were going to do. She did this so her cheer team could receive more attention and funds from the school. Sue is definitely not the kind, compassionate, nurturing women that follows the emotional feminine role.

Character is what makes us who we are; it is what makes us different from one another. How we live, learn, act, and perceive, all play a role in who we were destined to become the people that we are today. A character I would like to speak about is from my favorite TV show on AMC: Maggie Rhee from “The Walking Dead.” This show is about more than merely “killing zombies.” It is about character development.

A person's character is what defines him and his surroundings as well as his background. No matter how good or bad a person is he will evidently get affected by his surroundings and that is what will eventually define him. In a world this mammoth, there is a variety of people with diverse characters, everybody has his own way of presenting himself with his own character.
They were able to relate to the one inch at a time proposition of pulling together to come out of the disarray the team was in. They were touched by his honesty and openness in the beginning of his speech, which was an attention getter, then intrigued by the challenge to sacrifice for the team and fight for the inches need to win and survive. The coach ended the speech with a summation of the team fighting for that inch together and then concluded with the question, “…now, what are you gonna do”. The inspired team then went on, played with their heart, and won the football game.
He reminded them that he had a dictatorship manner of coaching. He often used metaphors such as “Any two year old child can throw a fit, but football is about controlling that anger” Coach Boone drilled perfection to his team members. They were paired up and forced to discuss family and social issues about each other to promote the knowledge of cultural differences, and most of all, to develop friendships. Coach Boone gave minimal water breaks to enhance discipline. He went to the extreme of awakening the team as early as 3:00am for a morning run through a dark, damp forest.
Coach Boone stresses the idea of respect; he doesn’t care if his players don’t like each other but he expects them to respect each other and maybe, they will learn how to play the game of football like men. As a leader, I have to be aware of my surroundings and the individuals around me that I could possibly be influencing by my actions but also by my character. The goal of a team is being able to say you are giving something that is bigger than yourself, one hundred percent effort, including your resources. A team is so much more than just one person, without fellow teammates a leader cannot
